Microsoft Was "Surprised" At Overwhelming Negativity Toward Xbox One DRM

Digital marketplaces like Steam and iOS have become more and more popular over the years, and Microsoft was hoping to take a slice of that digital pie with Xbox One. Unfortunately, the vocal community of gamers online weren't to happy about the DRM required to make it a reality.
Speaking to Rev3Games, Albert Penello from Microsoft explained the company's initial plan, admitting he was shocked to find such a massive surge of negativity toward their Steam-inspired model.
Call me crazy, but I'm kind of disappointed Microsoft folded under the pressure. If they hadn't communicated their vision for the platform so poorly, perhaps we'd have a feature-rich Steam competitor this holiday instead of a console that more closely mimics the PS4. Ah well.
